Steelers | Heath Miller back in 2016? (Thu Jan 28, 11:35 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller likely will be back with the team next year, despite carrying a cap hit of $7.2 million, according to beat writer Ed Bouchette.

Our View: Bouchette is the best Steelers beat writer there is, and if he says Miller will return with that big cap number we believe it. Miller is not the same player he used to be, but he's a favorite target of QB Ben Roethlisberger and may retire a Steeler. Watch to see if Jesse James gets worked more into the mix with Miller aging and slowing down.
